    This is so you can continue your games on multiple consoles. Accounts get linked to profile that way if two consoles have same profile they can share save and other data.

    Should I bother unlinking my burner Nintendo from my hacked Switch?

    Is there any benefit at all having a linked account on a purely offline Switch?

    Do any games insist on one even for offline functionality? I originally added on on this Switch so I could download Pokemon Quest for dev menu, but no need for it now.

    Next Up Hero requires an account even when playing offline.

    Thanks, this is exactly the kind of thing I was wondering about. May as well keep the account linked then. Thanks :)

    Still confused with the whole unlinking situation,

    I have a switch that's hacked and I've never gone online ever since Ive hacked it and I dont plan to anytime soon.
    I plan on buying the smash switch hardware bundle whenever it comes out and that will be my dedicated online/no homebrew switch.
    My nintendo account is currently linked to my 1st switch.

    Should I or should I not unlink?

    As I understand it, your Nintendo account is linked to your User Profile not your Switch. That would be the User name you use that has all your game saves. So you should be able to buy the Smash Bundle Switch when it comes out and log in with your current User Name that's link to your Nintendo Account .

    If you create a New User on you're new Smash Switch then you CAN NOT link your Nintendo Account to the new user. Your old User name and Nintendo Account are locked as one now.

    Can anyone else confirm I have this correct? I've been trying to thoroughly understand this for days now.

    From what I get from the New online service, is every profile on a swithch, will need to have a Nintendo account linked and subbed to go online. Hence the family plan which will cover multiple profiles.
